Ok, maybe this isn’t something you’d expect me to write on. I certainly never expected the word garden to be used in this blog. Stay with me though. This place is worth it.
The gardens are located at the Pitti Palace (address: Piazza Pitti – Firenze). It is an extremely popular place to visit in Florence. You shouldn’t have trouble finding it.
It took over 400 years to build these gardens, and due to historical significance, they are now a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
There is something unique about a garden. A garden is where man and nature meet – the wild merged with civilization. They balance fountains and sculptures with trees and flowers – two worlds typically considered at odds, complementing each other in a perfectly choreographed ebb and flow.
Walking through Boboli was a meditative experience for me.
I left more tranquil and contemplative than when I came in. By no means was I in a bad mood before, but it was only a matter of time before my walk intoxicated me with the glow that only comes from quality time in nature.
Within minutes I knew I would be writing a blog post on this place. There is so much to be shared here. Every inch seems to give life.
€13 for adults and it includes admission to the porcelain the art museum. It is home to some gorgeous pieces of work.
I spent much of my time in Italy at art museums, but this one stood out to me. I didn’t have enough time to see the entire collection, but there were some amazing early modern paintings and sculptures that really caught my attention.
